NEW ORLEANS  - Three brothers have pleaded guilty to a variety of federal drug, weapon and conspiracy charges encompassing years of gang activity, including a shooting spree that left 20 people injured at a neighborhood parade in New Orleans on Mother's Day 2013.

Twenty-six-year-old Shawn Scott, 23-year-old Stanley Scott and 22-year-old Akein (ah-KEEN) Scott face from 20 years to life in prison. U.S. District Judge Ivan Lemelle accepted their pleas Wednesday.

All three had earlier entered not-guilty pleas in the case.

Shawn and Akein Scott both were implicated in the parade shooting, which was just one element of the broad federal indictment.

Sentencing was set for Jan. 6.
